Blend, a caffeine free blend of South African Rooibos and uplifting spices.
Afrikaans for 'Red Bush' (pronounced 'Roy-Boss') is a member of the Legume family of plants. It grows exclusively in the Cedarberg Mountains and around Clanwilliam in South Africa.
The Ancient San Bushmen are believed to be the earliest users of Rooibos. Large-scale cultivation and industrial processing of the plant began during the 1930s.
The leaves of the Rooibos bush are harvested, bruised, finely chopped, moistened and fermented in mounds. The result is a rich flavor and distinct red colored thin leaves.
Rooibos is free of caffeine and contains aspalathin, a flavonoid present in medicinal herbs used to treat skin and circulatory disorders. It is also known to contain traces of fluoride, calcium and manganese which help boost the immune system.
We hand blend organic Rooibos with organic cloves, cardamom, cinnamon and spearmint.
Full bodied flavor, slightly spicy, cooling and sweet flavor.
